FREMONT -- Thieves stole more than $100,000 worth of computer equipment from a business in the city's Baylands neighborhood over the weekend, and possibly the company's shy office cat, police said.

Officers were dispatched Monday to Ituner Networks on the 47800 block of Fremont Boulevard for a report of a burglary, police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said.

Employees told police that sometime over the weekend, thieves entered the business by cutting a hole in the company's metal roll-up door.

As of Tuesday, the company cat, Tasha, had not been located.

Police described the feline as an extremely shy Maine Coon cat, brown and likely wearing a red collar.

It was not known whether Tasha ran away or if the thieves took the cat.

Anyone with information about the case or Tasha's whereabouts is asked to call police at 510-790-6800.
